While LightNode Singapore Shared vCPU Cloud Instance is a promising hosting platform with affordable pricing, it does have a few drawbacks to consider.

One issue mentioned by users is the lack of cPanel support and a narrow range of product categories, as the platform only offers VPS hosting. Additionally, some users have noted that Payoneer is not currently supported as a payment method.

Despite these limitations, LightNode offers a reliable hosting solution with multiple data center locations worldwide and a user-friendly administrative panel for the seamless deployment of web applications.

The platform’s hourly billing system is also a plus for users who need to customize and manage VPS instances flexibly. Overall, LightNode is a cost-effective option for developers or small businesses seeking an easy-to-use hosting solution.
